FAVRE LEUBA BATHY 160
Favre-Leuba is a Swiss watchmaker with a rich history dating back to 1737, making it one of the oldest watch companies globally. It’s known for its innovative designs, technical advancements, and durability. Favre-Leuba has been a pioneer in various horological advancements. For instance, it produced some of the earliest wrist-worn chronographs in the early 20th century. Their watches are often recognized for their robustness and reliability, traits that have earned them a reputation for being adventure-oriented timepieces. They’ve crafted watches specifically for explorers, adventurers, and professionals who require durable and precise timekeeping instruments in challenging conditions. The present watch fully epitomizes Favre-Leuba’s expertise in crafting timepieces for individuals engaged in extreme activities such as deep-sea scuba diving.
This Favre-Leuba “Bathy 160” stands as a remarkable scuba diving watch from the 1970s. Sporting a striking orange acrylic bezel designed for scuba timing, a blue dial with depth measurements in feet, and a robust stainless steel case and bracelet, it was undoubtedly the go-to timepiece for deep-sea exploration during that era. Maintaining an overall very good condition, it remains in its original state with intact shapes and finishing. While the dial displays a faint orange blemish, likely stemming from the material used for the hands and dial, this minor flaw does little to diminish the vintage allure of this timepiece.
The watch comes with original box and papers.
Year 1970’s, diameter 42.5mm x 48mm.
